Infections with the Outbreak Strain of Salmonella Saintpaul

By Date of Illness Onset by State (n=234*)

Infections with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Saintpaul, by date of illness onset

The outbreak can be visually described with a chart showing the number of persons who became ill each day. This chart is called an epidemic curve or epi curve. It shows that illnesses began in early February, peaked in early March and have been tapering off in April. Illnesses that occurred after April 17, 2009 may not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. This takes an average of 2 to 3 weeks. Please see the Salmonella Outbreak Investigations: Timeline for Reporting Cases for more details

* For whom information was reported as of May 7, 2009. One case-patient without an onset date was excluded.
